This new water rate structure helps both customers and PID to budget and plan for future needs. Customers will avoid water bill surprises by choosing a rate plan closest to the amount of water they plan to use each month - at a rate they choose - while PID will be able to anticipate customer's water use to maximize efficiency.
One of these two options might work best for customers who use less than the Proposed Adopted Rate:
One of these two options might work best for customers who use more than the Proposed Adopted Rate:
PID is requesting approval of an "Adopted Rate" (the "10k Plan") as well as optional "Customer Choice Rate Plans" (the "3k, 6k, 16k, and 30k Rate Plans"). If approved, the Adopted Rate and each of the Customer Choice Rate Plans would be available to both residential and business customers. The decision of whether to take service under the Adopted Rate or to elect one of the Customer Choice Rate Plans is to be made by each customer based on their unique water needs.
Rates established for 2016 - 2018 are based on PID's budgeted expenditures, and rates projected for 2019 and 2020 are based on 2018 rates, escalated by an estimated Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) of 3%.
PID is also proposing Drought Rates which would be applied in future 'drought years' as determined by the PID's Board of Directors.Proposition 218 Protest Form (100.93 kB)
